What are the various levels of coach certification?

AYSO offers coach training for every age group. The various levels are as follows and each one has its own course: U-6, U-8, U-10, U-12, Intermediate, Advanced and National. 

What are the requirements and time involved with various coach certifications?

AYSO's U-6, U-8, U-10 and U-12 courses are all considered "stand-alone" courses, meaning that you may take any one of them without having taken any prior courses. The U-12 course then becomes the prerequisite for taking the Intermediate course, which is the prerequisite for taking the Advanced course, which is the prerequisite for taking the National course. The U-6, U-8 and classroom portion of the U-10 course are available online at AYSO Training . Course times are as follows:

U-6 Coach – 40 minutes online (2 hours in-person) U-8 Coach – 30 minutes online (2 hours in-person) U-10 Coach – 40 minutes online and 1.5 hour field session (3 hours in-person) U-12 Coach - 5 hours Intermediate Coach - 15 hours Advanced Coach - 18 hours National Coach - 56+ hours 

How do I complete my Safe Haven for Coaches and Concussion training?

Please go to  You will need your AYSO ID number.  All Coaches and Assistant Coaches must take these courses before they are approved to coach.  If you need more instructions please see our How Do I Volunteer? for the details.

What is Safe Haven?

AYSO makes a commitment to provide a safe place for children to play and compete. The coach has a responsibility to help make the environment safe, as well as fun. To ensure the safety of both children and volunteers, each volunteer is required to take a short in-person or online-training session called Safe Haven™. It focuses on safety and appropriate behavior with children as well as first aid and other on-field issues. Agreeing to a background check is also required for each volunteer.  See more information about Safe Haven on the AYSO National Website.
